Request your renewal from Ebsco as a spreadsheet Does not require renewing as spreadsheet: No issue with using Ebsconet for renewals Do not try to get data from Ebsconet via my orders: confusing and time-consuming Probably fine to use My Renewals in Ebsconet to export to Excel
Copy the file (good to save original) Filter the spreadsheet to remove the online titles Cleanup membership titles (swap in title and ISSN as needed) Leave only the TITLE and ISSN fields Change the headers to TITLE and ISSN respectively Save the file as .txt (required for uploading into Serials Sol’n)
